After unprecedented demand and stock delays due to additional testing procedures, ASUS announce significant stock numbers due to arrive in UK
Initial demand for the Eee Pad Transformer has been far beyond our expectations, and following the on-sale date (6th April 2011) the first batches delivered to the UK have entirely sold out. Please accept our sincere apologies for the difficulties regarding stock availability with our retail partners.
ASUS always strives to set benchmarks for product innovation, design and quality. We have implemented a number of additional testing procedures for the Eee Pad Transformer to ensure an unrivalled user-experience. This has resulted in delays to a number of shipments to the UK. We are now due to receive a significant quantity of both Eee Pad Transformers and keyboard docks at the end of April/early May (exact date will depend on customs clearance and freight forwarding to our retailers). We are working hard to increase both the number of demonstration models on display and also general stock availability within retailers throughout the UK.
The UK is the global launch partner and we anticipate the additional stock being distributed amongst Comet, PC World, Currys and Carphone Warehouse stores late April/early May, whilst Amazon.co.uk and Ebuyer.com are also taking pre-orders.
Once again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused and please rest assured that we are working hard to increase availability of the Eee Pad Transformer as quickly as possible.
